    I think that's unnecessary. People are excited about getting their devices while other carriers are sending them out almost two weeks early.

    I'm super excited about getting my device like everyone else, but our lives will be no different because we got a phone a week or two later than others. ShinyTop is just having some fun and laughing at our little community for getting so worked up over nothing.

    I ordered mine at 6:55 am central on 02/23 and it still says "processing".

    Grrrrrrr...

    At least my microSD card came in today from Amazon.
    I put my order in around 8:15AM that day and it's still processing.
    The ship date flips between 3/11 & 3/30

    I spoke with Verizon when I saw it change to 3/30 and the person said that they didn't receive a shortage notice so it should ship out on 3/11.... guess we're not getting them early

    What is the "Location code"? I've been trying to figure that out. Is it different delivery regions in the country?
    It would be on the receipt

    It is necessary... very necessary. There is a lesson in there somewhere.

    I pre-ordered today and am very pumped. I had a extremely hard time selling my galaxy s6. I think I remember seeing this answer but don't wanna scroll thru it all again....was the option for the watch or VR done during pre-ordering or do you go onto the Samsung site when you get your phone and choose then?

    Correct, you have to wait until you receive the phone and then goto the Samsung promo sight and register your phone for the promo gifts by entering your IMEI, MAC address and personal info then wait 4-6 weeks to arrive.......

    If you read the offer Rules, it does actually state that the Gear S2 is a gift option for those ordering from vzw.com. It does also state that the entire promotion has 300,000 gifts available, so I don't know what that means for everyone...
    It probably means Verizon users won't get to take advantage of the promotion because they will hold on the phone till the last minute to ship. Its been frustrating dealing with Verizon over this whole deal, every time I call I get some who acts like they have never even heard of the s7 let alone a promotion.

    I don't want to be the voice of Big Red but I can answer some basic questions since I work on the retail side.

    Those wondering what there location code is - It's just a way for the stores to be able to see your order in case of exchanges or returns. Every store has a location code - the internet has a location code too - So does Tele-Sales. All that stuff is also in your account.

    Those angry about Verizon getting phones out late has been business as usual forever. They have always held there phones to a strict street date most of the time with some exceptions here and there.

    The silver one is back ordered. Why? No idea. I'm not a buyer. We knew that after day 2 of pre-orders opening. Verizon tends to over-estimate though. Same thing happened with iPad Pro's over Xmas. People were told end of January, they got them 1st week of January.

    I have a gold one on order as I'm partial to that color and I'm looking forward to the 11th just like you all. Hopefully that answers some of the questions I've seen in this thread.

    Saw a similar thing with the Nexus 6P except that was a 5 week ordeal. It's unrealistic that each carrier ships their S7 out at the same time. Verizon has more customers, wants the phone branded and has contracts for pre-loading software. T-Mobile just has less hoops to jump through, because they are the smaller "cooler" carrier and keeps everything to a minimum.

    But like what many people have said, a week early phone shipment does not make a good network and for many, many people here, it's always worth it to put up with a little annoyances to stay with the superior service. Everyone will forget all of this by the end of next week anyway.

    I ordered my black S7 Edge online at Verizon Wireless on 2/25. When I look on the Verizon Wireless Web-site I see my order as being processed. However, I don't see any estimated delivery date and I never got an email from Verizon confirming the order. I see that others are referring to their confirmation emails. Did everyone get a confirmation email?

    Understood, but does that impact the ploy of free gear from Samsung? So if it is limited supply of the freebies and the other carriers that shipped early... well those people get to submit tomorrow. I only pre-ordered to get the freebie.

    I ordered mine by phone. Got an email requiring me to confirm payment (the taxes in my case) and the license agreement to complete the order. The email should go to the primary account holder. If you are not the primary account holder you should check with who is.

    Whatever email address you have tied to your MyVerizon account would have had a confirmation email sent. Online will only show you processing till its actually shipped. Check your junk inbox just in case.

    I know it doesn't help but the promotions are straight from Samsung. The two freebies being offered are not even stocked by Verizon. Samsung is the only place you can redeem your freebie. The kicker in this is that the watch is only offered to those that Pre-Ordered online. Hopefully we all get our watch or VR glasses.

    This was the same during Xmas when Samsung was giving away Gift Boxes. People presumed we had the Gift Boxes but you had to send your receipt online to Samsungs Promotions page. It is convoluted. It always has been. But they have always followed through. I guess we shall see how this goes.

    ".......Earlier today I got a call from someone deep within Verizon ranks. I was informed by my source that the reason Verizon has not been able to ship out S7 and S7 Edge devices is because they are under Embargo until March 8. This is when they will begin shipping units. this means that we may see the units arriving on doorsteps up to 2 days early. I guess 2 days early is better than on time or late." -DroidmodderX

    this is getting out of control. all the other carriers shipped theirs and VZW is just holding back. This really irritating millions and millions of customers. I order on the 23rd and have a ship date of 3/11. When I pre ordered my note 4 it came early by almost a week.
    No, on T-Mobil has shipped and not all of them have. Unknown why

    Speak for yourself. I'm using a LG G2 currently. I have major issues with the phone. I've had a couple replacements, and have come to the conclusion, the phone is just too old to handle the newer apps. So when I get my phone it WILL change my life drastically. I won't have to worry about clearing my apps every half hour or having my music player close on me while in the car cause I'm also using maps at the same time or it not even connecting to my phone via bluetooth. Its so hit or miss. I just want to be happy with my phone choice again. Lol

    That doesn't make sense. Why would Verizon be under embargo and not other carriers?

    My thoughts exactly. I ordered a S7 Edge from T-Mobile late in the day on Wednesday and it's being delivered today.

    Samsung will be thrilled if it's actually irritating "millions and millions of customers." I think it's just irritating a few people on message boards myself.
